ᛘᚢ᛫ᛚᛁᚠᛅ᛫ᛁᛋ᛫ᛘᚢ᛫ᛋᛏᚬᚱᚢ - "My Life Is My Story" Viking Shield. All linework and shading is wood burning pyrography and it is finished with 18 oil wood stains. This one displays the spirit animal and message of a strong shieldmaiden going for her doctorate. "The gull sees farthest who flies highest." It is paired by marriage with "I Will Not Sink" Shield which is why the "S" in these two shields are all backwards. #arforvalhalla #art #norse #viking #vikings #vikingshield #spirit #crane #spiritanimal #woodworker #longislandsound #portjefferson #celtic #nordic #bird #heathen #pagan #zoomorphic #beach #seascape #pyrography #shieldmaiden #story #beachlife #herron #shield #nature #protection #mother #warriorwoman

ᛁ᛫ᚹᛁᛚᛚ᛫ᚾᛟᛏ᛫ᛊᛁᚾᚲ - "I Will Not Sink" Viking Shield was one of the first shields i attempted to burn and design. All linework and shading is wood burning pyrography and colors are 11 oil wood stains. At the time I was working on it, I was contemplating not making Artwork anymore. It seemed I rarely had the time, was very depressed and felt never and always alone.. One day I went to the Ocean and by chance heard a Bob Dylan song "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall" and his lyrics "I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.." Made me realize that I was letting others dictate my self worth as an artist, and that I exist to create things, not to be frightened to do so. I finished this shield that night as a reminder to never give up! Then one of my best friends, @pixelsandpints not only bought the shield, but also told me you have to try Instagram, filled with so many great artists on there. So if you like my work or my tattoos you have my buddy "Chops" to thank for it.

My only wish for my two sons is that I am never an anchor to their dreams, never the sail who does all the work for them, but simply a light in the darkness to guide them on their journeys.. #artforvalhalla #art #norse #viking #vikings #dragon #vikingship #lighthouse #drake #firebreather #sons #father #woodboat #iwillnotsink #life #journey #voyager #norge #boatbuilder #pyrography #vikingshield #longisland #guide #guardian #nightswatch #heathenhorde #boatlife #seascapes #clinker #legacy
